Duncannon Travel guide
Duncannon : Michelin's recommendations
This small seaside village, partly built on a peninsula, boasts a beautiful sandy beach. The fort (1.2ha), built for defensive purposes in the 12C by the Anglo-Normans, was reinforced in 1588 to resist the Spanish Armada. In 1690 both James II and William III took ship from Duncannon following the Battle of the Boyne.
